Country Garden in the fall

These bird houses looked kind of empty - no birds in sight!  So I think it works for a fall card, with flowers in fall colors.  The DP is DCWV fall pack.  The image is my prize from High Hopes, called Country Garden.  I was happy to have a chance to ink it up - though I had to crop it a bit for this layout.  The sentiment is Our Daily Bread.  I used more prizes for some of the coloring - the small flowers, leaves and centers all use Spica pens - I have come to really like the results of these shimmery pens - and the ease of use.  The rest of the coloring is with Prismas.  The leaves are Shapeabilities Orchard Harvest.
